MG MGA - Little green car in Travelers' commercial?

OK, this is not MG-related but it's really bugging me and I can't find the answer anywhere on the internet. In the new Travelers Insurance commercial there is a girl sitting on top of a little green car. Has anyone seen it? Does anyone know what kind of car that is?

Do you mean this?
I don't know what it is, but someone else might.

I think it is a Nissan Figaro

Its retro styling is accentuated by chrome from bumpers to boot hinges. The Figaro has a 987cc turbo charged engine and three-speed automatic transmission. Internal fittings include a retro-styled CD player, air conditioning, all-white leather-trimmed interior, and canvas roll down top.
The Figaro was built in very limited quantities in 1991 (run of 20,000) and only sold in Japan ...but has since achieved cult status.
Any cars seen driving round the streets of Britain are second hand and have been imported.

The Nissan Figaro was a copy of the 1960s Goggomobile ?

Correct! This is in fact a Nissan Figaro. There is another model along the same lines called the Pao. Still several of these running around today here in Japan. Prices are cheap.
