Let the sunshine in! The panoramic sunroof is a re-interpretation of the legendary folding soft top

Let the sunshine in! The panoramic sunroof is a re-interpretation of the legendary folding soft top
  • Legendary folding soft top gave the Beetle an 'open air feeling' year-round as early as in 1950
  • Today, large panoramic sliding sunroofs bring sunlight on-board in many Volkswagen cars and at any time of year

The days are growing shorter, the leaves are changing colour, and fall is making its appearance. Despite the season, a lot of Volkswagens are still bright as in summer. There is a tradition here. Ever since the company's early years, intelligent roof systems have been capturing the light of the sun even in wintertime. As early as in 1950, Volkswagen began to offer the Beetle with a folding sunroof. In the
mid-1990s, this roof concept was refined in the Lupo and Polo with electrically actuated versions. Today, transparent panoramic sunroofs are experiencing a boom. They are available for all Volkswagen models – from the small up! and new Polo to the large Touareg and new Arteon.
