Moonroof vs. Sunroof: What’s the Difference?

January 3rd, 2019 by

Range Rover interior and moonroof

The terms moonroof and sunroof are thrown around interchangeably, but there is a difference between them. The differences lie in the materials as well as usage. A sunroof is made of glass or metal that slides open or pops up to allow light to flow into the cabin and a moonroof is a clear or tinted glass that can slide between the roof and headliner, tilting open for fresh air. Both make your Land Rover’s interior more spacious and full of fresh air so be sure to see our inventory of models that include this feature to experience a new type of Phoenix commute.

What Are Panoramic Roof Systems?

While there are pop-up, spoiler, inbuilt, top-mount, solar, removable, electric, and electronic moonroofs and sunroofs, the most popular type is panoramic. You’ll notice the panoramic moon/sunroof is normally offered as an available option on base trims and standard on the higher luxury trims. This type of roof is made up of multiple panels that are either operable or fixed allowing front and rear passengers to open their panel to enjoy the Gilbert weather as they please.
