The rear windows have what they call privacy glass, however this offers very little protection from the sun or heat. This is mainly designed to offer security/privacy. There is a clear film that is recommend to be put over the rear windows to offer passengers protection when getting the front done.

Hey,

The rear glass does definately offer uv protection and will also cut heat as per normal tinting. I looked into this carefully when I had my front window tint completed. There is another tread from a while back that goes into this in far more detail.

Apparently the whole clear film thing was started by the tinting industry to try and get you to tint the whole car $$$$.

I guess with so many cars coming out with privacy glass they needed to push something.
