Laser screw welding (LSW) is used at key joints throughout the body-in-white to increase joint rigidity. Special high-rigidity polyurethane adhesive is used at the contact points between the windshield, rear window and the body to improve body rigidity. The reinforced body includes additional gussets on the front door, rear door frames, and B-pillars to increase joint strength.

In order to make young people like this car, Toyota made the Camry's handling more sporty and installed a closed cross-section structure on the top of the front suspension tower to increase steering flexibility. The rear uses a ring-shaped rear body frame and is connected to additional brackets added to the rear suspension, which can withstand higher levels of lateral forces and reduce roll when cornering at high speeds.

To reduce noise, new sound-deadening material is used on the hood and upper and lower fender dividers. More foam is used throughout the vehicle, and a thicker dash muffler pad is used in the front firewall section to further isolate the passenger compartment from the engine bay.

Although the suspension part retains the old MacPherson strut at the front and E-shaped multi-link structure at the rear, Toyota has added a sports version and specially tuned the suspension for this car to increase lateral support and improve the confidence of driving on mountain roads. Users can choose between standard and sport versions.
