The Difference Between Sunroof and Moonroof

2019 Toyota Highlander Sunroof
Although many Fairmont drivers use the term “moonroof” and “ sunroof” interchangeably, there are a few differences between sunroof and moonroof. Moonroofs are clear or tinted glass panels situated between the roof and the headliner, and usually can be tilted to let in the fresh air. A sunroof is a panel made of glass or metal on the roof of a car, truck, or SUV, that pops up or slides open to allow light into the cabin. Both are good options for Kingwood who like a light breeze on a balmy day.
