What does Ada(or Rust for that matter) do better than C?

Surely, you have all of the tools for static analysis, debugging, macros
for C that you would for any other language, no?

I could understand generics, interfaces, iterators, OOP and all of that
from a masturbatory standpoint, but that aspect aside, what utility do
these provide over C?
