Is the panorama roof laminated or tempered glass?
 
In this euroncap test it looks like the panorama roof doesnt shatter. Is it laminated?


In comparison the x5 panorama is definately unsafe tempered glass:

Per yor original question, dunno, may have just been luck. I know some previous Audis had shattering problems. Maybe they modified how they make it.

On a side note the pedestrian head impact test near the end of the video was pretty neat where the hood pops up to soften the impact.

All Q5/Q7 use Tempered on all glazing in the vehicle except rear windshield and front. Only the A6 and A8 have laminated side windows.

Yes, Audi confirmed that panorama is tempered. However, as option Q7 has laminated front and side glass, rear is not, if tinted also rear side are not laninated.

I am not sure if that is an option in all regions. I have not seen that on a NAR build-sheet.

In europe they are options PDJ and PDG.

I'm wondering if panoramic roof reduces noise insulation significantly when adding together with heat/sound insulating windows? I mean that sound insulation with these windows is very good. Will it become worse if panoramic roof will be added?

My thoughts exactly. I ordered the heated laminated front window and side windows. Then I found out if the rear windows are tinted Audi offers only non laminated windows in the rear. Wierd, so now only front side windows and windshield are laminated. So for me it would have been noisewise indifferent as I took tinted rear windows in tge etron order, but dont want a sunroof imploding on my children. But if you order non tinted rear windows with lamination, I bet you lose some sound insulation with the oano. In the Tesla I have a laminated pano.

Therefore I'm going to order non tinted windows and apply an aftermarket tint. By the way - that was an advise of the local dealer if I'd like to have the best possible noise insulation. The demo car I've tried have had a pano and I liked it very much. But now I'm thinking that it might void laminated windows advantages.
