Subway commercial orange car

Is it a Lada or a Fiat?  And yes, I was watching VH1's Top 40 One-Hit Wonders of the 1990s.

Looks like a Fiat 125 to me. Do you have a link of the commercial?

@Viva: I can't find it on YouTube. So I had to take a picture of my TV screen.

That is a Polski fiat 125. You can still see them in Eastern Europe but they are getting pretty rare.

I think that exact car serves as the ride of Lauren Graham's character's teenage daughter in the current season of Parenthood. My wife was watching it and asked, "Hey Ed, is that some kind of communist car?" I looked and nearly fell over.

It's actually a Fiat 125; you can see the badges in some of the scenes. Unfortunately, my google search for a screen shot is turning up nothing.

As Ed Kim points out, it's the same car. It's a Fiat 124 Special. The driving lamps are deleted, and the bumper is different from the original.

It's also the bad guy's getaway car in the "High Crimes" episode of the Closer. Lots of screen time...
