Break means estate car. Perhaps it derives from "shooting brake":
Quote Shooting-brake is a 2-door car body style with a squared-off rear.[1] They generally have hatchbacks although one or a pair of side-hinged doors is also sometimes seen.

The term originated with custom built 2-door luxury estate cars altered for use by hunters and other sportsmen such as golfers, riders, and polo players requiring easy access to larger storage areas than offered by the typical automobile boot.

Same as Station Wagon, Safari, Variant, Cruiser, estate...... (even though some of those are specific to certain marques)

Anyway, "break" is just the usual French term for estate.

I prefer "SportCombi " myself, I just like the way it rolls off the tongue ...

On the German market French made Estates/Variants/Wagons... are also named "Break". This goes for Renault, Peugeot, Citroen and Simca. Maybe today it's different, but from the 60ies to the 90ies it was "Break" over here, too.
