From what I have seen
Chickmanglur, Darjeleeling, parts of Kerala
all this is based on need not luxury. I'm not talking about Prados and Pajeros, but Mahindras and the like

I think Delhi has max number of SUVs. Scorpio and Safari are seen as the most driven but I can find good numbers of CRV, Captiva, ML350, Pajero, Q7, X5, X3, Cayenne and other imported one as well.

I believe this high SUV incidence in Hyderabad / AP is more to do with the predominantly agrarian background of many affluent people. Many of such people used Ambassadors to move to their homes in urban areas and to their fields in their villages. Ones who regularly used Ambassador take a liking to its inner space and the comfort. And if it is in the range of affordability, many prefer Boleros, Scorpois, Safaris both for practical purposes and for statues consciousness. Ofcourse, aura of status an SUV gives is high. Add to it the real estate boom Hyderabad in particular and AP in general is witnessing.
I had an Ambassador which I sold. I now have a Bolero and an Indica. I prefer Bolero for longer trips with more than 3 persons. If it is less than three then it is Indica. For me, it is all practicality and economy, and nothing like being status conscious.

Most of the hill stations normally have SUVís. Kerala has most of the best imports SUVís and there are some families in Kerala who prefers only SUVís. If any one whatís to pick up a SUV then it would be Kerala.
