Budget itself is the prime reason

As we are talking about the budget, sunroof in a car can increase it’s price to some extent. Because it is difficult to do CAD for a well designed sunroof. Making and installing is also a bit expensive.

Stability issue

Budget cars are lighter than the other segment and sunroof adds weight to the top of the car. It is the worst place for any vehicle as it raises the center of gravity. It leads to affecting the vehicles stability.

Fuel consumption increases

As we understood above that sunroofs adds weight so it also affects the mileage of vehicle.

Affecting air conditioning system

In a budget segment we don’t have that powerful air conditioning system. And adding a sunroof can limit the benefit of air conditioner drastically.

Disturbing the slab

If manufacturers add the sunroof in budget segment then it will automatically end the market for its luxury segment. Because now a days sunroof is a big thing for any four wheeler.
