2011 Mitsu Outlander Sport: Well-Designed Sunshade

I'll be honest, I'm not a fan of the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. Not with that engine and transmission I'm not. Seriously, I'm quite confident that my 16-year-old blender would be more successful at propelling this thing. But that's not the point I'm making here. Instead, here's something I like about this little utility vehicle

Look at that panoramic sunroof and more specifically its sunroof shade. Most jumbo sunroofs come with a sliding shade that utilizes thin vinyl or headliner-like materials of varying thickness. Oh, and then there's the useless meshy stuff that gives you more sun than shade.

The Outlander Sport, on the other hand, features three rigid panels that slide back and stack on top of each other. The result is no sun coming through, reduced noise and no flapping in the breeze should you lower the windows. You also gets some snazzy yellow LED accent lighting as well. If only the powertrain were as well executed.
