Until recently, an electrically operated sunroof was a feature reserved for high-end luxury vehicles. However, as rivalry increased, mass-market manufacturers added this technology to the top-end models of several rather inexpensive automobiles as well.
While single-pane electric sunroofs are becoming more widespread, dual-pane panoramic sunroofs are still largely seen on premium automobiles and SUVs, with only a few mass-market choices. Let’s have a look at the 5 Best Cars With Panoramic Sunroofs in India:
