Moonroof vs. Sunroof

April 10th, 2016 by

Do you ever wonder what the difference is between a sunroof and moonroof?


Nissan Rogue with Panoramic Moonroof



People tend to use these terms interchangeably but there is, in fact, a difference between the two. Both a sunroof and moonroof are panels in the roof that allow light and fresh air inside the vehicle. The contrast between the two lies in that a sunroof is a solid body-coloured panel that pops up or off whereas a moonroof is a glass panel positioned within the roof of your car.

A moonroof allows sunlight to enter your vehicle (regardless of weather condition) without having to open the roof. Oftentimes a moonroof comes with a secondary, interior sliding panel that is upholstered to match the interior of your vehicle. A sunroof is generally comprised of painted metal that blends in with your car’s roof.



Moonroofs are the smarter choice for vehicles, especially for cities with varying weather patterns, and can be found on most Nissans.
