CHICAGO, Aug. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Increased incentives and strong lease deals on nearly every type of vehicle make Labor Day weekend one of the best times to buy a car this year.

"As summer draws to a close, manufacturers will be heavily discounting inventory to make room for new 2015 model year vehicles," said Jesse Toprak, chief analyst for Cars.com, the leading car shopping site and a comprehensive digital marketing resource for car dealerships and manufacturers. "As a result, consumers can take advantage of some outstanding new-car deals. Large SUVs and full-size trucks offer some of the steepest discounts, but shoppers will also be happy to find great offers on select luxury and hybrid models throughout Labor Day sales weekend."

The following high-value incentives are available in August:
