Want to maximize the amount of natural light inside your vehicle? Then you’re in luck because there are several automobiles, including cars, trucks, and sport utility vehicles, that have pretty huge windows installed overhead.


But which one might be best for you? Let’s take a look at four popular vehicles with really big sunroofs.


Chevrolet Tahoe

Newer-model Chevy Tahoes, particularly those manufactured in 2020 and beyond, can come equipped with a panoramic sunroof that spans almost the entire length of the vehicle’s roof. Whether you’ve got a decent-size family (or are planning to have one) or simply want a larger ride that can hold tons of stuff, this seven- to eight-passenger SUV may be the right vehicle for you. 


Keep in mind, though, that the larger your overhead window is, the more susceptible it may be to damage. In fact, Consumer Reports has theorized that larger sunroofs may be more likely to explode than smaller ones. But there’s currently no evidence to support that theory. 


Multiple Model of Land Rovers

Several models of Land Rover vehicles come equipped with huge sunroofs, including:


●        Defender

●        Discovery

●        Discovery Sport

●        Range Rover, Range Rover Evoque, Range Rover Sport, and Range Rover Velar


Depending on the model you choose, the sunroof may be fixed or sliding, so keep that in mind. If you’re just looking to let the light in, a fixed overhead window may be best for you, but if outdoor ventilation is your thing, a sliding model is likely a better choice. Like the Tahoe, Land Rover models are also excellent for hauling lots of things or carting around a family, especially if you’re playing taxi driver for a band of active kiddos. 


Subaru Ascent and Forester

If you’re the outdoorsy type, pretty much any Subaru-model vehicle should be right up your alley. But if you’re the outdoorsy type who also wants plenty of natural light inside your ride, the Subaru Ascent or Forester should fit the bill perfectly. Subarus are known for their reliability, durability, remarkable lasting power, and resale value, so if you’re looking to make a smart investment into a rugged and well-lit vehicle that’ll last, either of these models is a great choice.


Several Jeep Models

If you’re the outdoorsy type and want a well-lit vehicle with a little more clearance, several Jeep models might be right up your alley. The Cherokee, Compass, Gladiator, Grand Cherokee, Renegade, Wrangler, and Wrangler Unlimited can all come equipped with a massive sunroof, depending on the year and trim you select.


If you haven’t owned a Jeep before, you should know they can eat through fuel quite quickly. If you’re looking to conserve, perhaps another vehicle model may be right for your needs.


Care Tips for a Really Big Sunroof

When you own a vehicle with a massive sunroof, taking good care of that glass is paramount to avoid damage. You’ll want to thoroughly clean the glass, vacuuming around the track when necessary to prevent abrasive particles from creating tiny scratches. You’ll also want to periodically ensure that all moving parts around the overhead window are clean and properly sealed to prevent moisture from getting inside your vehicle.


Should your sunroof incur damage caused by hail or other falling objects, schedule sunroof repairs as promptly as possible to minimize the risk of further damage to the window or injuries from broken glass. And, if you ever end up needing a sunroof replacement, it’s likely in your best interest to opt for OEM auto glass over an aftermarket product.
