New MG HS and ZS 2020 pricing and specs detailed: Essence Anfield editions arrive in time to celebrate Liverpool win

The HS Essence Anfield wears a unique metallic black paint scheme.

MG has rolled out Anfield editions for its top-spec HS and ZS SUVs, priced at $40,680 drive-away and $25,490 before on-road costs respectively.

While the ZS Anfield is limited to just 200 units, the HS version will be a permanent fixture in MG’s mid-size SUV line-up, which was also recently expanded with the Essence grade that is positioned at $36,990 BOCs.

Both the HS Essence and Essence Anfield variants will be arriving in local showroom later this month.

The HS Essence Anfield wears a black metallic exterior (an exclusive colour), which is contrasted with a red-leather interior.

Equipment such as autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, sunroof, sports seats, surround-view monitor, 18-inch wheels, dual-zone climate control, Apple CaPlay/Android Auto and satellite navigation carry over.

Powering the HS Essence Anfield is a 124kW/250Nm 1.5-litre engine that drives the front wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

Meanwhile, the ZS Essence Anfield is due to land in early July, and sports a high-gloss black front grille, red accents on the front and rear bumpers, and either a black or white paint finish.

Inside, the limited-run ZS scores a black and red fabric interior, while equipment such as 17-inch wheels, panoramic sunroof, 8.0-inch multimedia touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and satellite navigation, and reversing camera carry over from the standard Essence grade.

The ZS Essence Anfield is powered by an 82kW/160Nm 1.0-litre turbo-petrol three-cylinder engine, which sends drive to the front wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission.

Both Essence Anfield editions celebrate MG’s continued global partnership with Liverpool FC, who just took out the 2019-2020 Premier League title.
