English translation:1. remote rural 2. distant rural 3. subrural
Explanation:
Hi comunican,

1. This would been the logical intermediate step between rural and remote

2. Can be foundon the web as in "distant rural areas", gives an idea of "rural" being closer to the cities.

3. Here, you would have to decide if subrural should come after "suburban". In this case, one could interpret rural as being further from city areas.

Good luck!
