Sunroof systems are available in many shapes and sizes. They are known by many different names, including the pop-up sunroofs, folding sunroofs, top-mount sliding sunroofs, moonroofs, panorama roofs, etc…
Large panoramic sunroofs appear to be the latest trend in the automobile industry with all major carmakers already offering such systems in a broad range of cars, SUVs, crossovers and minivans.
South Korean carmakers use large panoramic roofs with power shade in a large number of models, including the new Kia Sorento SUV.
The 2022 Kia Sorento, which has just recently been fully redesigned, is one of those vehicles that takes the advantage of wide openings above both the front and rear seats.
