Very disappointed that the roof doesn't open very far. It's not like my MKZ which you had to push the open button twice for it to fully open.

As far as I am concerned the dual panel roof on the new Continental is a joke.   The fact that it flops up over the roof instead of tucking neatly between the roof and headliner makes it look like a cheap aftermarket afterthought.

brucelink, I think you mentioned a while back about the sunroof opening "UP" instead of down and back. Sunroof is a big deal to me. My last 3 cars have had them and I love them. But not if they look like that!

 

The F-150 dual panel roof works nicer than the Conti....

For better or for worse, the Porsche 911 sunroof opens the same way as the Continental (up and back). I generally don't USE the sunroof, other than for letting extra light in the cabin by pulling back the blind and letting the sunlight in with the roof still closed. I have a sunroof in our car and it's really only been opened once. lol...

I use mine in the MKS just about all year round. Same as I did with my SHO and my LS.

 

If it's sunny out and above freezing, radio up, heated seat on, sunroof open.

If you are really into sunroofs and don't care so much how it is designed, the Conti roof might be fine for you.  I just think it is a poor design and a huge step backward compared to the dual panel roof in the MKS.

That absolutely looks like crap. I thought you had posted that pic before. What's the point of that thing? It's just about as fugly as that glass roof thang on the MKZ!

Doesn't open very far and just barely vents.

That opening doesn't even look big enough to pass an In N Out order through...lol...yep Porsche is doing the same design in the 911 sunroof but at least theirs opens considerably more and sits more flush with the roofline.  For some reason somebody thinks its a 'hip' design or something, I guess.

 

Still like the new Continental, though. That hasn't gone away.

That design seems to be the trend in many vehicles.  It is no doubt easier and cheaper to build and can likely be made wider than the style that tucks between the roof and headliner.  This design also would take up less headroom.   In spite of those things, I still don't like it.

Yep. It's kind pointless, IMO, aside from just being able to let sunlight through the glass
