A sunroof is kind of a premium feature that is limited to top models & expensive cars. But you can get it on a budget too. While the summer is kicking in hard, we gotta keep the interior cabin cool. Too much air-conditioning is not healthy either, so you gotta let some of the cool monsoon breezes inside with a sunroof.
There are two kinds of a sunroof. A regular & a bigger panoramic sunroof. While we can find the regular one on the cars mentioned below, the panoramic one is pricier. It can be found on more premium cars such as Tata Safari & harrier, MG Hector & the biggest in the segment, the Mahindra XUV700.
Top 7 Sunroof Cars in India
A sunroof adds a little bit of luxury for your car and gives it a airy feel in the cabin. During summer, the sunroof can be left open and the breeze can lift your senses. While during the monsoon, you can watch the raindrops falling on the glass and feel one with nature.
It is usually the higher trim variants that get a sunroof for that added level of style and luxury, however there are some affordable cars that feature sunroofs as standard.
