Question type: Shopping & Pricing

What exactly is the difference between a "Sunroof", a "Panoramic Sunroof",
and a "Moonroof"? I have seen listings using these terms and I don't know if
the dealers even know what they are talking about and what the differences
are. I have a feeling dealers say "Panoramic Sunroof" as puffery and to
sound more impressive, but that it is merely a sunroof and a panoramic
sunroof is actually more extensive.

A Sunroof is typically a metal panel that matches the car's exterior. It opens but allows the air and light in, basically a full "open to air" opening. A Moonroof is a glass panel usually having an interior panel that slides over it from the inside to block the light. This panel will also open from the back or completely open to the air. A Panoramic is pictured. These terms are often crossed and mixed up.
