Always dreamt of an SUV having lived in US for some years.... but slowly and steadily changing to a car mindset... reasons being that in India, no SUV south of 15 lakhs is worth anything. Plus the driveability and downforce of a car coupled with Delhi traffic and you can toss the thought of SUV out the window.

As the primary vehicle for daily point A to B - a car.
As a secondary vehicle for those highways trips, family trips, adventures etc - an SUV.

My nexy car would be an SUV, presently i drive a car. I dont use my car on weekdays thanks to the present traffic condition, I use my car on weekends only. My next car definatly is a SUV. which is tuff, take it anywhere one among these "Bolero, Judo, Gurkha" monsters. hehe

I am driving a CAR because I cannot afford a decent SUV, decent in the meaning not the Bolero or a TRAX. I would love to own a Tuscon, CRV...or a cayenne one day

Car is my choice because i think they are much more stable then SUV's. Though i love Tuscon / Safari / Endy but if given choice i would go for a sedan anyday until and unless my needs are of a SUV
