Call me dumb, but what's the difference? My guess is that the sunroof slides open, where a moonroof doesn't open or just pops open.

Re: Sunroof vs. Moonroof (MK3)

i think a sunroof has glass in it so the sun can come in when its closed. where a moonroof in solid but still slides like a sunroof.

Re: Sunroof vs. Moonroof (G0to60)

I have always thought of it the other way... moonroof is glass, and the sunroof is metal.

Ding ding ding, we have a weiner!

Sunroof = Metal
Moonroof = Glass

On their US website VW describes what they offer as a sunroof and it's glass.

A simple search under "Sunroof moonroof difference" under yahoo brings the following:

"Sunroof" is the generic term used to describe an operable panel in a vehicle roof which can let in light and/or air. "Moonroof" is a term created by Ford in the 70s, yet is now used generically to describe glass panel inbuilt electric sunroofs.
A "moonroof," on the other hand, is a glass panel that can allow light in even when it is closed (provided, of course, you slide back that nifty fabric-covered panel to expose the glass)

Moonroof = see-thru sunroof. I'd rather have that than an opaque panel! Still slides and tips open.

Other way around.
