By far the best is 

Basix Magic Shade Super Jumbo Sunshade (Styles May Vary), by Auto Expressions.  I got it on Amazon for $11.  The only one that easily fits the huge front windshield, exactly fits into the headliner - dashboard.  Two-piece, folds into a circle that fits nicely between the console and passenger seat.  Like all foldables, takes a few times to get the hang of where to grasp it so it collapses neatly on itself.

I purchased a Heat Shield sunscreen. It fits really well, all the way side to side, top to bottom and has the smallest gap behind the mirror of any shield I've owned or seen. You won't be disappointed. It fits so tight, I don't have to use the visors to hold it up. The only drawback is it rolls for storage and takes up some space.

Tim - if it rolls up for storage, what makes it stiff enough to stay put in place?

It fits all the way to the sides and is held behind the interior trim of the A pillars.

Here's some pics I took this morning in good light. It does sag a little, but it will fit really tight with a little effort.

I've been using the Heatshield for about a month and I'm very happy with its performance. It's definitely bulky and takes a few moments to unroll/roll up (a noisy process), but it fits like a glove and seems to be doing a great job of keeping the front interior cool on some very sunny/hot days.

Might it be easier to install something from the outside on the windshield using suction cups?  I mean less hassle to unroll the thing and install from the outside than to have to push it up from the inside.  Just thinking.  I remember seeing things like that in the past with ropes on the sides of them tied to the mirrors.  Just thought of suction cups that might be a neater way to install.

I just ordered one of these. I had a different type for my Escape and it was fine but it's of course not large enough for this windshield. And if it reflects the heat as well as the website says it's going to be worth the high price to me. :)

I have a "spring loaded" one now, but I have to make sure I'm alone when I undo it for fear I might hit someone if I lose control while opening it.  They sure reduce way down in size.
