What does the writer mean here by skipping the sunroof?

The STI also has more front-seat headroom (assuming you skip the sunroof) and a bit more than 2 inches of extra rear legroom, while on the other hand the Focus RS has almost an extra inch of rear headroom.

Does it mean assuming you ignore the sunroof?

The link you have provided does not work for me, perhaps it's regionally locked.

I would assume it means that the car has more headroom than the Focus RS unless you but a model with a sunroof in it as the sunroof housing lowers the headroom.

I could be wrong as however as I cannot read the article.

I lack the imagination for a witty signature.

Sarries -

I was interested in reading your explanation as the way I interpreted it seemed counter-intuitive. But unfortunately you have a bit of a keyboard-glitch and left out something in the second sentence?

"assuming you skip the sunroof" is meant as a jest. You are not going to stick your head out through the sunroof, are you? In other words, the sunroof doesn't count.

I also assumed it was a joke



Lots of headroom

It is poorly structured as a joke, but I can't see how choosing the sunroof option reduces headroom, so that makes no sense.

Poster Sarriesfan above made some sense with his 'fuzzy' comment:

Quote:

...a model with a sunroof in it as the sunroof housing lowers the headroom.


ie. a model with a sunroof requires a large and strong housing thus increasing the distance between the car ‘ceiling' and the external body work.

And I expect it to be especially so for passengers in the back seat since a sunroof needs to go somewhere when it is open...usually backwards.
(or upwards which then alters the aerodynamics)




just sayin'

Really? No sunroof I've seen reduces the headroom.

Maybe I am not travelling in posh enough cars.

A bit of a typo yes sorry.

I meant to type " unless you buy a model with a sunroof in it".

Sometimes the predictive text one the device I use causes little glitches most of the time I spot and correct them, that one slipped through the net.
