    A/C is more common nowadays. Although it's hard to understand how A/C and a sunroof are alternatives for each other, that's how car manufacturers positioned them as for many years.

    Totally agree - I loved it when I had a sunroof on my car. Much fresher air than air conditioning - and best way of cooling car fast if it had been left in th sun for a few hours.

    Sunroofs on modern cars are an expensive optional extra so most people don't bother.
    My old mans Omega CDX has both dual climate control and electric sunroof but would of loved a sunroof on my Vectra.

    As said, manufacturers see aircon being an alternative. Still available as options on a lot of cars though. Like Penfold though I have climate control and the sunroof on mine, but even on that I'm fairly sure it was an option when new.

    It is nice to be able to slide the blind back and get the extra light at times, even if not using it open very often.
