2009 Audi A4 Avant: Panoramic Sunroof
August 05, 2009
With most cars, the sunshade will automatically roll back when you open the sunroof. Not so with the A4 Avant's panoramic sunroof, which is actually open in the above photo. I guess this is to facilitate extra airflow through the A/C vents, more than would be accomplished by simply tilting the sunroof. Or perhaps it's to provide that open feeling without the sun being on your head. Or maybe because people like wind noise without the added bonus of wind.
Actually, I have no idea why it does this, but it can. Now here's a video.
