Opening up the interior with a sunroof in a Hyundai Sonata also helps with ventilation and the overall appeal of the car. Installing a sunroof in a Hyundai Sonata requires removing a cross brace along with precision cutting skills and special tools. The maximum size sunroof for a Hyundai Sonata is a generous 22 inches wide and 34 inches long.

Remove the front seats by unscrewing the four bolts under each seat. Place a sheet or tarp over the interior.
