What Is The Difference Between A Sunroof & A Moonroof?

Technically, there is a difference between a sunroof and a moonroof, but today everybody mostly uses the terms interchangeably, and the truth is a moonroof is a type of sunroof.

SunroofOriginally a sunroof was a solid body-colored panel that could pop up or be removed, whereas the term moonroof was introduced in the 1970’s to describe any panel in the vehicle’s roof that is made of glass.  Today sunroof is simply a generic term used to describe any panel in the roof of a vehicle which lets in light and/or air.

Moonroof is now most commonly used to describe glass panel inbuilt sunroofs, where the panel slides between the vehicle roof and headliner.  The majority of new cars technically have moonroofs, as what was originally considered a sunroof has pretty much gone out of style.
