I have both and personally prefer the Glock, but you've answered your own question. Whatever you're most comfortable and confident in is the best choice for you. I've found my XD/M to be as reliable as any of my Glocks (which means 100% reliability).
CC and Car Travel are two different guns in my opinion.
I would get myself the XDs in .45 and get my wife something in 9mm. That XDs is going to be a handful for a woman to shoot. Especially with the small magazine. Pierce extensions or the 7 round extended magazine make that XDs a different pistol.
The width is going to be the issue with CC, that is why everyone likes the single stacks. A car/travel pistol is a completely different set of criteria.
