Moonroof vs. Sunroof: What’s the Difference?

Range Rover sunroof

When you’re shopping for a new Land Rover, you might be thinking that a sunroof or moonroof would be a great way to enjoy driving around on summer days in Greenwich. And you’re right! What’s the difference between a sunroof and a moonroof? A sunroof is made of glass or metal that slides open or pops up to allow light to flow into the cabin. A moonroof is a clear or tinted glass that can slide between the roof and headliner, tilting open for fresh air. 

What Are Panoramic Roof Systems? 

Panoramic sunroofs and moonroofs are popular in New Canaan and Stamford, and they’re also the kind of room systems that you’ll find on luxurious Land Rover models. It’s a large or multi-panel roof with openings above the front and rear seats. The panels can either be operable or fixed. The panoramic moon/sunroof is normally offered as an available option on base trims, and standard on the higher luxury trims. 

Other Types of Roof Systems

  • Pop-up: A manually operated tilting panel that’s usually removable
  • Spoiler: Tilts to vent, and slides open above the roof
  • Inbuilt: A panel that slides between the metal roof and interior headliner
  • Top-mount: A large glass panel slides open in tracks on top of the roof
  • Solar: Glass with an inlaid photovoltaicsolar panel that makes the glass totally opaque and generates power
