AmaZulu have some of the coolest endorsement deals in the South African topflight and the club recently revealed the stunning new cars at their disposal, with their values in the region of half-a-million rand each. Here's a look!

The story

AmaZulu are seemingly becoming one of the commercial giants in the DStv Premiership. While it is unclear whether they can compete on the level of Mamelodi Sundowns, Kaizer Chiefs, and Orlando Pirates in this regard, what is evident is that they too are well on top of their game - boasting over 10 sponsors including Mitsubishi South Africa.

The Japanese multinational automobile manufacturer has been in partnership with the eThekwini outfit for quite a while now, even during Benni McCarthy's tenure as manager. The deal has not only benefited the club and its staff, but it has also been a joy for their supporters, as one of their fans won also won a car at the back end of last year.

While they already had access to various models, including the Xpander, ASX, and Outlander, the team has revealed the new Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross parked outside their store at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban.

This model is considered an SUV-Coupe and according to the company, it won multiple awards thanks to a fusion of the sleek and sporty styling of a coupe, coupled with the practicality and dynamism of an SUV. This range is not only stylish but it also has the obvious perks of a passenger carrier, such as a large interior and luggage space, reliable performance, and first-class comfort.

A standard version of the vehicle will set you back by R479 990, while the turbo models start at R519 990. Senior officials at the club as well as the manager, Romain Folz and his coaching staff, including Ayanda Dlamini, have already been spotted behind the wheel of these dynamic cars.

While they don't consider themselves a luxury car brand, the company does have the Mitsubishi Prouida, a luxury sedan that is unfortunately only available in Japan.
