So you want a new SUV with a panoramic moonroof or sunroof? That’s great, because we have a list of the 2022 model-year SUVs that offer panoramic glass roofs of any type.
Some details before we dig into the SUVs with a view: To keep things relevant to the typical consumer, this list only features SUVs that cost less than $40,000 when fitted with a panoramic sunroof or moonroof. (Prices do not include destination charges.) Where the panoramic glass roof is an optional extra, we’ve noted how much it costs and or which trim level you’ll need to choose; if it’s standard equipment, we’ve noted that, too.
One other caveat about the list: These are just the SUVs with panoramic glass roofs, i.e. multiple-row-spanning glass roofs, not the more common (but still great) single-row sunroofs or multiple individual sunroofs.
1. 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer
The Chevy Trailblazer
Price with panoramic sunroof: $26,730
To get the panoramic-roof version of the 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer, you’ll have to tick the box for the LT’s $1,770 Sun and Liftgate Package, as well as the $520 Convenience Package and the $145 Confidence II Package. Along with the panoramic sunroof, you’ll get a hands-free rear liftgate, automatic climate control with cabin humidity sensor, rear park assist, and more.
2. 2022 Kia Sportage
The Kia Sportage
Price with panoramic sunroof: $28,090
Getting a panoramic sunroof as standard equipment in the 2022 Kia
Sportage is as easy as selecting the Nightfall Edition. At a starting price of $28,090, the Nightfall is the least expensive way to get a panoramic glass roof in the 2022 Sportage. Those shopping for a new Sportage may notice that the all-new 2023 Kia Sportage is now available, but the 2022 model, if you can find it, still offers great value.
3. 2022 Subaru Forester
The 2022 Subaru Forester
Price with panoramic sunroof: $28,895
A power panoramic moonroof is standard on all variants of the 2022 Subaru
Forester except for the base model, meaning you’ll have to step up to the $28,895 2022 Forester Premium (or a higher trim) to get the expansive glass roof.

4. 2022 Volkswagen Taos
The VW Taos
Price with panoramic sunroof: $29,095
Taos is all-new for 2022. Volkswagen’s smallest SUV is powered by a peppy yet fuel-efficient 1.5-liter engine. While a panoramic sunroof isn’t available in the base S, it’s a standalone $1,200 option on SE ($27,895) and higher trim levels.
5. 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan
The VW Tiguan
Price with panoramic sunroof: $31,320
The 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan SE starts at $30,120 and requires only the addition of the $1,200 a la carte panoramic sunroof option to have an expansive glass viewport over the occupants’ heads. Not bad for a compact SUV that also offers 3-row seating in some configurations.
6. 2022 Jeep Renegade
Price with panoramic sunroof: $31,440
Like the Forester, the 2022 Jeep Renegade offers a powered panoramic sunroof on every model except the base Sport model.

7. 2022 Nissan Rogue
The 2022 Nissan Rogue
Price with panoramic sunroof: $31,500
A panoramic sunroof is available in the 2022 Nissan Rogue SV,
which starts at $28,840. To get the panoramic roof, you’ll need to tick the SV Premium Package box, a $2,660 option that adds the panoramic glass roof as well as roof rails, a power liftgate, rear-door sunshades, leatherette seating surfaces, heated front seats, and more.
8. 2022 Chevrolet Equinox
Price with panoramic sunroof: $32,190
The 2022 Chevrolet Equinox includes lots of standard active safety systems plus standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, but you’ll have to choose the all-wheel-drive 2022 Equinox LT plus the $3,440 combined expense of the Panoramic Power Sunroof package, the Driver Convenience Package, the Driver Confidence II Package, the Confidence & Convenience Package, and the roof-mounted side rails option.

10. 2022 Hyundai Tucson Hybrid
The 2022 Hyundai Tucson
Price with panoramic sunroof: $32,350
When it comes to the Hyundai
Tucson, the least expensive way to get a panoramic sunroof is with the Tucson Hybrid. Opt for the Tucson Hybrid and choose the mid-tier SEL Convenience trim to get the panoramic sunroof included, along with a host of other cool features, including a hands-free smart power liftgate, 19-inch alloy wheels, and more. With the non-hybrid Tuscon, choose the top-of-the-line Limited at $35,300, and the panoramic sunroof is included.

13. 2022 Volvo XC40
The Volvo XC40
Price with panoramic sunroof: $37,670
If Scandinavian style and a healthy dose of practicality sound like good companions to your panoramic moonroof, the 2022 Volvo XC40 Momentum is a good pick. Add the Laminated Panoramic Moonroof with Power Shade option ($1,475) to get an even more open, airy cabin feel.
14. 2022 Toyota RAV4
The Toyota RAV4
Price with panoramic sunroof: $38,015
RAV4 is the best-selling SUV in America, thanks in no small part to its versatility, reputation for reliability, and excellent resale value.
