The M-4 has a shorter barrel than the M-16. Maybe the 16’s would be a bit more accurate?

Not by any appreciable measure.
The longer sight radius helps at the far end of the rifle’s effective range, but the use of optics (compact scopes or red-dot sights) negate this advantage. And the M-4 is much more compact for somebody in a vehicle.

M4 is just fine. The barrel length is usually 16" and it's mainly a close-quarters weapon. It will still reach out and touch someone at 500 yards.
Personally, I'm a fan of the mid-lengths and that's what I'm using on my current build.
