The UltraView roof for the new Cadillac CTS (pictured), designed by Cadillac and Webasto Roof Systems, is one of the largest of its kind in a sedan—almost 70% of the car’s roof is glass that allows in natural sunlight for both front- and rear-seat passengers. The roof consists of two UV-protected glass panels arranged in tandem. Like a traditional sunroof, the front panel of glass can tilt for venting or, when opened, retracts and stows under the back panel thereby letting fresh air in, but with the advantage of continuing to provide light and a view of the sky to rear-seat occupants. For times when softer light is preferred, a retractable power interior shade can be used.
