It can be difficult to learn about all the available features before you buy a vehicle. Today we’ll be looking at answering the question “What is a moonroof?” and other questions you might be asking yourself while learning about new vehicles. This might seem like a simple question, but the answer might surprise you.
Why is it called a moonroof?
A mooroof is a panel made of glass that can let light in even when it’s closed. The term “moonroof” was first used in the 1970s, but is now widely used to describe glass-panels in the roof of vehicles by all manufacturers. A moonroof includes a tinted glass panel, which is an additional window that is on the roof or your vehicle. A major difference between a moonroof and a sunroof, is that moonroofs allow you to enjoy sunlight regardless of the weather outside, because it is made of glass and you don’t have to open it to see outside. The sunroof on the other hand it made of metal and so you can only see outside if it is open. A moonroof is actually a type of sunroof.
