    I am looking to buy and wondering about how much heat is generated with the large screen and glass roof. Ideally I would like a black one but I am concerned that my black dog will roast in the car. Any feedback?

    The roof is so large, my car is white and it gets pretty hot...

    When driving it's not much of a problem (lack of shield for the sunroof) but parked... It builds up quickly.

    The car has a feature called cabin overheat protection where it uses the climate control to limit the temp inside to 40C... And it happens pretty often even in my mild Canadian weather ;)
