Italian term or phrase: avant
This is from a description of the types of cars that can be rented to employees as company cars (Audi Avant). Is "station wagon" a suitable translation in UK English?

Thanks.

Explanation:
It's not necessary to translate "station wagon" because with Audi Avant we refer specifically to the station wagon series (A4, A6 or S6), so you can use both expressions; if you chose the one you suggested, just use "Audi station", without "wagon".
