Call them sunroofs or moonroofs, UltraView or Panorama, or even something else, when it comes to the best family cars with dual sunroofs, it’s not the name that matters but how top-drawer the feature is.

Here are dual sunroofs from six automakers worth a look. Family vehicle choices include luxury cars, SUV, crossovers and minivans. Two are standard in certain models only, while the rest are optional equipment ranging in price from $1,090 to $1,595.

Mercedes-Benz C-Class, E-Class, S-Class


Three five-passenger luxury sedans from Mercedes-Benz, the C-Class, E-Class and S-Class, offer a panorama sunroof as optional equipment. Front and rear-seat passengers can enjoy sweeping skyward views through the fully-functional glass skyroof. The front portion provides tilt-up or slides over the rear section for a convertible-like open-air feeling. Dual interior power shades allow occupants to decide just how much sun to let in. Cost for such luxury is a mere $1,090.

Cadillac’s SRX five-passenger compact luxury crossover has an UltraView dual sunroof standard on all but the base model and features power tilt, slide panel, express-open and power sunshade. Making up 70 percent of the SRX’s roof, the UltraView extends to give second-row passengers that all-important open-air feeling.

  1. Doesn't the Kia Optima also have the extended Sun roof as an option?

  2. @ George Reichler -- You're absolutely right! The Panoramic Tilt/Slide Sunroof (dual sunroof) is available as part of an option package on all but the base LX Optima.

  5. Once again, Chrysler gets the shaft. Both the Chrysler 300 and Jeep Grand Cherokee have excellent dual-pane panoramic sunroofs, and are excellent Family Vehicles. Once again, you fail to show the whole picture to your audience. Thanks for being a hater. Chrysler is doing just fine without you.
