Expert Answer:

Glass transmits only 50% of heat radiation coming from hot sources like sun but does not allow radiations from moderatively hot bodies to pass through it. Due to this when car is parked in sun, heat radiations from the sun get into the car but as the temperature inside the car is moderate , they do not pass back through the windows. Hence inside of the car becomes considerably warm.
