I own a C-MAX SEL and made sure it did not have the panoramic roof. It dosn't open to the outside and when the inside cover is moved back anyone in the back seat can see out it but if sitting in the front seats you don't see out unless you turn around and look out the roof, something I wouldn't suggest while driving. In other words the opening or view is behind the driver and front passengers head. I felt it was useless and a waste of $1200. Most that have arrived at dealers in my area have this option. I am sure some will like it but I do not.
How far back from the beginning of the roof does the panaramic roof begin?

No the roof is fixed and does not open to vent as you asked.
Can't see the point of that. Additionally it will probably reduce the load capacity of the roof - my co-worker bought an Escape Titanium and was told that the load capacity would be reduced drastically (something like less than 100lbs) if he bought the pano roof. I'd also be suspect of the crash worthyness of a car with a glass roof.
It's too bad they did not even offer the option of a traditional sunroof since there is plenty of headroom in the C-max.

I looked at the sunroof on the C-Max. It is very large and has a neat motorized shade. However, since it doesn't move, it is worthless to me. It will only allow more heat into the car.
Worse yet, it is $1200. I'm sure that the sealed model is to increase mileage. However, It is way too expensive and way too non-functional for me. I didn't order it with my C-Max.

Anyone investigate an aftermarket or OEM operable sunroof?

When I found out that it was not moveable I immediately crossed it off the list - especially for the $1200 asking price.
Now if they offered high quality solar panels built into the roof for that price I'd be all over it...
