Sun visor inside a 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

A sun visor is a component of an automobile located on the interior just above the windshield (also known as windscreen).

Most cars have two sun visors, one for the driver's side and a second for the passenger's side, with the rear-view mirror often mounted in between the two sun visors. Each visor can be lowered to help block light from the sun entering through the windshield. They can also be turned to the front side window to reduce lateral sun exposure.

Many sun visors also incorporate a vanity mirror for passenger's convenience. In some cases, a flip up cover over the mirror automatically turns on the vanity lights, which can be adjusted with a sliding dimmer control (see image).

Recently, sun visors incorporating LCD screens, DVD players and other devices have become available as an aftermarket modification.
