Explanation: The translation of this term depends on who your reader is, and also on the exact kind of vehicle. The general public will not recognize "véhicule loisir travail" but everyone knows what a "quatre-quatre" is. If vehicles of the type Renault Espace are included in the Sport Utility definition, though, "quatre-quatre" no longer applies.
