Anyone know what this panel on the roof is?

2023 Tucson Hybrid Limited owner...I just noticed an interesting panel on the roof behind the shark fin antenna.

Does anyone know what it is? It looks like it should pop up (for some reason), but I can't figure out what the heck it is.

BTW, I've owned 10 cars (MGB, Charger, Fords, Toyotas - all bought new), and this is my third Hyundai. It's by far the best car I've ever owned.

It's a rear spoiler for when you go over 120 mph on the race track.

In other words, I don't know. :D
Style. Every curve in the metal doesn't have a purpose other than style, so, it's aesthetically pleasing.
No, it definitely has a purpose. If you look closely at the picture (or at an actual Tucson), you will see it's not a curve in the sheet metal but an actual panel that can presumably be removed.
In that case, I definitely think you should remove yours...
