German term or phrase: Glasschiebedach
Dieser VW Tiguan setzt noch eins drauf! Mit dem ***Glasschiebedach*** gewinnt der kompakte SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle) aus Wolfsburg zusätzliche modellbauerische Qualität. Dank des baulich perfekt eingearbeiteten Accessoire lässt er sonnige Einblicke zu – ein Modell wie geschaffen für den Sommer 2008.

agree  Björn Vrooman: Here's the asker's text (incl. picture): https://www.wiking.de/de/wikingmodellpflege/vw-tiguan-glasda... Definitely "panoramic."//Did suew not look at the link I posted? This is a model car - what's there to slide?

agree  ElliCom: my client is the world's leading producer of roof systems. The glass is being replaced by synthetics, often composites

neutral  suew: I'm pretty sure "sliding" is missing here - many panoramic sunroofs today are fixed

  -> Although I see your point, VW does call them what I posted and not 'sliding' panoramic sunroofs.
