$168$

Explanation:

let number of non SUVs be $x$.
since number of SUVs is 40% greater than non SUVs;

$i . e .$ the difference between the number SUVs and non SUVs is 40%# of the number of non SUVs.

$\implies \frac{98 - x}{x} \cdot 100 = 40$
$\implies 9800 - 100 x = 40 x \implies x = \frac{9800}{140} = 70$

$\therefore$ total number of vehicles parked in the garage is $70 + 98 = 168$
