Nissan Labor Day Deals

Incentives for buying heavily favor financing through Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp (NMAC) thanks to bonuses worth as much as $3,000 that can be combined with 0% APR. That can make financing a no-brainer in the case of models like the 2019 Altima.

The Murano currently has one of the best leases on an SUV with offers starting at $259/month. Alternatively, those planning to buy will find as much as $5,250 in bonus cash that can be combined with 0% financing. We actually consider that one of the best 0% financing deals on an SUV.

Here's a look at which brands feature a Labor Day bonus based on region.

Region Model Best Deal
Central U.S. Extra $1,000 off Maxima, Murano, Armada. Extra $500 off Rogue (SV, SL). 2019 Nissan Armada SV: Lease from $468/month with $468 at signing (incl. $750 loyalty discount)

Subaru Labor Day Deals

Subaru is one of the few brands that can get away with not advertising rebates. However, that doesn't mean there aren't still deals to be had.

In fact, we consider the 2019 Outback to be one of the best SUVs you can lease with a $239/month deal. That actually makes it cheaper to lease than a Forester despite a higher MSRP.

Prefer a small car? The Impreza currently ranks as one of the cheapest leases on a car at just $169/month. Alternatively, the brand is now offering 0.9% financing for 72 months, a rare deal for this model.

Inside Tip: Subaru rarely adds extra incentives around holidays. Buying used? The brand is offering 1.99% financing on certified pre-owned vehicles.

Toyota Labor Day Deals

Toyota still isn't throwing around big sums of cash to sell its cars. At least not as much as its competitors. While better deals may be introduced closer to Labor Day, we consider the Highlander to be one of the better deals with as much as $2,000 cashback.

The 2020 Corolla features one of the best leases on a car in August thanks to a $199/month lease.

While the Prius benefits from a whopping $50/month cut in price to $249/month, we still consider it a lackluster value. If you're buying, you may find the Prius Prime to be a better deal with $3,500 off plus special incentives you can only get with a plug-in vehicle.

The 2019 Sienna offers $3,000 cashback, still the largest amount to date and a top deal on a minivan.

Inside Tip: Toyota sometimes lowers rates and adds up to $500 in bonus cash around holidays. Check back for updates.

Volkswagen Labor Day Deals

Audi A3 Cabriolet

Like last month, VW is offering a $1,000 bonus on the Jetta, Tiguan, and most Atlases. If that doesn't sound impressive, it's because it isn't.

The real savings comes in the form of unadvertised dealer cash incentives worth up to $3,000 in the case of the Passat and $2,000 for models like the GTI.

The Tiguan currently ranks as one of the cheapest leases on a compact SUV. It's also one of the best leases on any SUV in places like California.

Financing rates start at 1.9% APR, with no sign that the brand plans to add 0% APR like many of its competitors.

Inside Tip: VW is reportedly shortening its warranty from 6 years to just 4 starting with the 2020 model year. If you place a priority on having additional peace of mind, you may want to consider buying a 2019 model while you can.
