WHEN temperatures start to soar, a once cool and comfy car interior can become an unbearable oven; enter the best car sun shades.
Car sun shades are a great way to protect your car from overheating, whether you're leaving it stationary in the sunshine all day or heading off on a long summer road trip.
Too much sunlight and heat exposure can cause damage to your car's interior as well as sweaty discomfort for passengers but sun shades can offer protection from harmful UV rays.
Another benefit is offering rear window shade for babies and young children travelling in the back – who hate having the sun in their eyes – and more shade can only encourage a long nap on the move.
There's a range of car sun shades – from car windscreen shields to different types of rear window shades, including those specially designed for babies and children.
We've rounded up eight of the best car sun shades to keep you cool in 2023 – with a range of types and to suit different budgets.
