I feel while riding in the Volvo it is much more refined. They both have their personalities, which are quite different. I have a real soft spot for subi's but love the solidness of a Volvo. The volvo is a lot more $$ to buy and maintain respectively. I think that either would serve you well in what you want out of a vehicle. Test drive both and do what feels right.
