Let's Go Places: Prepare to kick axe!

Calling all bad axes—the latest competitive craze has hit Seattle: throwing axes and drinking beer for sport. We popped by Axe Kickers to see what it's all about.

Rule number one: Don't let the idea of hurling hatchets at a bar throw you off. As dangerous as it might sound, it's actually quite safe. Every team is assigned a coach to ensure proper form and to enforce the rules. (Yep—there are rules. The National Axe Throwing Federation [NATF] is real!)

Rule number two: Be prepared to work! Throwing an axe isn't easy, and precision is key.

Luckily, when it comes to test-driving new adventures (even ones as crazy as axe throwing), Toyota has got your back. Hop in, enjoy the ride, and Let's Go Places.

The 2019 Toyota C-HR offers a distinctive style mixed with a unique spirit, both of which prepare you for the road ahead. You'll find yourself taking center stage with its uniquely expressive, precision-cut lines that let C-HR shine from every angle. Agile handling helps this crossover show off its athletic side, with a driver-focused cockpit that keeps you in command.

Born from the ingenuity of a race car driver, Toyota C-HR is designed to maximize driving pleasure every time you turn the wheel — whether you're cruising through the city or taking on your favorite winding road. Inside, its comfortable front bucket seats feature deep bolsters to help cradle you in the corners. Under the hood, a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine gives you 144 horsepower to play with, giving you hustle you need to get to your next favorite spot. Throw in a sport-tuned suspension and Continuously Variable Transmission with intelligence and Shift Mode (CVTi-S), and you can count on Toyota C-HR to deliver a drive like no other.

Best of all, with its standard Toyota Safety Senseā„¢ P (TSS-P) suite of active safety technologies, you'll get a valuable package of safety and cool tech. Because, as any good driver knows, accidents can happen, and when it comes to driving, the best defense is a smart offense. So, embrace and express that bold spirit in the smartest way possible with advanced safety features and measures that are designed to help keep you alert and safe in the event of an accident.

Toyota C-HR's distinctive design stands out for all the right reasons — without even trying. Its fit lower body sits atop available 18-in. wheels to help give this city cruiser one powerful stance. C-HR's higher height and its steeply raked rear window work together to create a sporty, passenger-friendly cabin, as well as a uniquely distinct silhouette.

Its standard projector-beam halogen headlights with unique cluster LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL), along with its cantilevered rear spoiler, all add to C-HR's sharp and edgy look and feel. And with all its color options, including an exclusive black or white roof on R-Code models, you can customize your C-HR to really make it your own.

Toyota C-HR's distinctive exterior extends inward to its sleek interior texture. When you get in, you're instantly surrounded by a space that's been designed for someone who is really passionate about driving. The interior, which features available leather-trimmed seats, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, and standard satin-plated shift knob, is totally intuitive and further showcases C-HR's focus on style. And C-HR isn't just sleek; it's smart too. An available Smart Key System gives you easier access to jump right in, push "Start," and go.
