C++ is an object oriented (OO) programming language. C isn't.

OO has been widely accepted as a technological idiom hus it can be presumed to have merit. Arguments claiming it is popularity contest ignore the fact that there are many 'popular' technologies that have short runs and which are then abandoned or even outright condemned. So to the extent there is any objective criteria for picking a technology idiom OO seems to accepted as being better.

Although one can program using OO in C it requires a great deal more manual attention to detail and additional code than doing it in C++.

Both of those make it more likely that additional bugs will show up.

Even more worrisome at lot of that additional code will involve pointers. And pointer bugs in C (and C++) are some of the more difficult bugs to find and thus cost more to fix.

Of course one could just use structured programming rather than OO. Although having done OO for many years I find it extremely difficult to think in structured terms for anything more than trivial bits of code. And at one time I used to do structured programming so at least I know how to do it.
