MG’s flagship Hector SUV was launched in 2019 and has been a solid driving force when it comes to sales. Its seven trim levels come with two engine options mated to either a petrol or diesel engine. The five-seater’s panoramic sunroof can be operated by its portrait-styled touchscreen infotainment system, which the brand claims is the largest in its class, providing occupants with a sense of openness and freedom within the cabin. 

To note, there is a 44 mm-longer Hector Plus model which is offered in six and seven-seat configurations as well. Ex-showroom prices of MG Hector start at ₹13.99 lakh (Style) and end at ₹21.95 lakh (Blackstorm).

Mahindra has been at the forefront of advanced cars in the Indian automotive industry and its XUV700 SUV is proof of the same. Boasting one of the largest Skyroof, as Mahindra likes to call it, in its segment that spans through the length of the cabin, the SUV introduced a lot of segment-first features including ADAS and a 10.25-inch touchscreen system.

Whether cruising through urban streets or embarking on an adventurous road trip, the sunroof results in the overall upliftment of the driving experience for occupants. There are four trims available with the XUV700, namely MX, AX3, AX5 and AX7 that cost ₹13.99 lakh, ₹16.39 lakh, ₹17.69 lakh and ₹21.29 lakh, respectively.

Tata Safari

The Tata Safari known for its strong build quality and spacious interiors holds a special place in the hearts of Indian car enthusiasts. It sits above the Harrier in Tata’s stable and is 63 millimetres longer than its younger sibling. It also holds the title of India’s first five-star SUV rated by the Bharat National Car Assessment Programme (BNCAP), making it one of the safest vehicles in its class.

With its 2023 facelift, the 7-seater also got Level-2 ADAS. The panoramic sunroof starts to be offered with the Pure Plus S trim at ₹20.39 lakh (ex-showroom) and is powered by a 2.0-litre diesel engine belting out 168 bhp and 350 Nm of torque under the hood.

Jeep Compass

Jeep Compass

The Jeep Compass features a huge dual-pane panoramic sunroof for a clear view of the sky. Because of its vast opening, the panoramic sunroof in the Compass lets a large amount of natural light into the cabin. For those offroad trails, there’s also 4x4 capability on board with the top-end Model S (O) variant.

Engine options are limited to a 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel that it shares with the Tata Safari and MG Harrier. While Sport and Longitude trims miss out on a panoramic sunroof, Jeep offers it with the Longitude (O) trim starting at ₹24.69 lakh for the manual and ₹26.69 lakh for the automatic, respectively.

In summary, the use of panoramic sunroofs in such vehicles mirrors the changing tastes of Indian customers for luxury and comfort in cars.
