MG tops up SUV range with new sports-themed (if not sports-tuned) specials, one of them a strictly limited offering.

Australian pricing for two new soccer-celebrating MG models has been announced, with the new 2020 MG HS Essence Anfield and 2020 MG ZS Essence Anfield SUVs launching this week.

Both Anfield models – named for Liverpool's home stadium – have been announced to commemorate the Liverpool Football Club's drought-breaking win in last week's English Premier League championship.

MG HS Essence Anfield

Announced as a permanent addition to the range, the MG HS Essence Anfield is available in just one colourway: metallic black on the outside, with combination red-and-black trim in the cabin.

The Anfield is otherwise unchanged, offering the same features detailed with the new Essence model. Read our HS Essence pricing story here.

The HS Essence Anfield is priced from $40,680 drive-away, compared to a current drive-away offer on the regular MG Essence of $38,990 (although that excludes metallic paint, which adds $700 on regular models).

The HS Essence Anfield is available through MG dealerships from mid-July.

MG ZS Essence Anfield

A little more special is the new 2020 MG ZS Essence Anfield, limited to 200 units.

Unlike the HS Essence Anfield, the MG ZS Essence Anfield gets a number of exterior styling enhancements.

These include a gloss-black grille frame, with red pinstriping along the leading edge. There are also red highlights to the front and rear bumper inserts.

A red-and-black combination trim again appears inside, with a striped pattern through the centre of the seats. Red stitching is also applied to the steering wheel, gear lever gaiter and door cards.

Exterior colour options are limited to white and black.

The MG ZS Essence Anfield is priced from $25,490 before on-road costs, although MG currently lists a drive-away offer of $27,490.
