Your sunroof is a moveable panel that opens to reveal a window in your vehicle's roof, allowing both light and fresh air to enter the cabin from above. A sunroof differs from a moonroof in several ways. Two of the more significant differences are that a sunroof usually matches the rest of your vehicle's body color, helping it to blend in with the rest of the roofline, and can be completely removed -- whereas a moonroof is typically just a glass pane that at most tilts.
Sunroofs arose from a common early automotive arrangement where the passenger compartment was covered by a fixed roof and the chauffeur rode in an uncovered section. By the 1930s, though, vehicles were being built with a one-piece metal roof that didn't have the opening over the driver's section. That led to the use of sliding sunroof panels, as more and more took to driving their vehicles on their own -- and still wanted to enjoy pleasant weather. To this day, sunroofs remain a popular feature. They can be manual or electric, and installed at the factory or after the vehicle has left the factory. They come in many types, all the better to suit your preferences -- and your vehicle's structure.
Types of sunroofs include:
