A tough looking cookie bathed in milk chocolate has joined our garage recently. It isn’t one of those delicate French delicacies though, which melt in your mouth, and which, you savour one bite at a time. As we found out, the Renault Duster is made out of an iron dough which is kneaded into shape by bare, industrial hands and is baked in an oven where probably the toughest of sweet things puff into readiness. One bite is all it took to realise that even ‘Tough’ can leave the sweetest of tastes in your mouth.
