The interior of your car can feel extremely hot after being parked out in the sun for a while.
Your only thought when you get inside is to roll down the windows and crank up the AC to cool things off as fast as possible. Once you feel like you can breathe again, you might wonder—how hot do cars get in the hot weather?
A car in summer can be up to thirty degrees Celsius hotter than the outside temperature. When it’s a balmy 35 degrees outside, it’s could be a deadly 65 degrees inside. The steering wheel and the dashboard, being black which absorbs the heat, can be twenty degrees hotter still – a whopping 85 degrees Celsius which is enough to burn.
