Yeah as said by James W. Grenning, It is left to the designer to choose between C or C++ based on the application requirements.. But Programs written in C++ are easy to maintain and reusable.

I think the better question is, "Why are you still using 3GLs?" I would recommend skipping C++ altogether and programming in Executable UML (Mellor and Balcer). Use a model compiler to generate C code and avoid the overhead of C++ altogether.
