最寄りの駅でもここから4キロ離れている。って英語でなんて言うの?

この場合の離れてはapartを使って、4km apart from hereでいいのか、awayを使うのかfarを使うのか迷っています。

apart も far も使いません。

正しい英語は「The closest station is still 4 kms away」。

「Still」を入れた理由は、「でも」を表現するためです。
このような still の使い方は、以下の例を参考にしてください:
- The fastest time I could muster was still 2 seconds slower than the fastest runner(最善の努力を果たして一生懸命走ったが、それでも一番速い選手よりも2秒遅かった)

The example you gave works fine on it's own. You can also say the following as alternatives though there is not much difference between them.
"The station nearest to here is 4 kilometers away."Nearest is just an alternative word to "closest"
"There is a station 4 kilometers away from here"Again there is not much difference here,just a different way to say it.
あなたの考えた例でも問題ありません。それ以外に次のように言うこともできます(ただ、違いはあまりありません)。

"The station nearest to here is 4 kilometers away."(最寄りの駅は4キロ先です)

"Nearest" は "Closest"(最も近い)の別の言い方です。


"There is a station 4 kilometers away from here"(ここから4キロ先に駅があります)

これも、大した違いはありません。単に別の言い方というだけです。

You gave a perfect example answer to your own question. I added two more examples of saying exactly the same thing. All words used in each of the three examples are exactly the same, but it is the word order or sentence structure (syntax) that differs. This shows how flexible the English language is. You say exactly the same thing in three different ways by using the exact same words.
あなたの考えた文は完璧です。私からは全く同じ意味の例文を二つ加えておきました。

これら三つの例文で使われている言葉は全く同じです。ただ、語順、構文が異なります。英語がすごく柔軟な言語であることが分かりますね。同じ意味のことを異なる言い方で、同じ言葉を使って、伝えています。

If you are giving someone directions it is great to give them estimates of distance.
"I think the grocery store is about 2 km from here, it isn't far at all."


'From here' means that you are measuring the distance starting from where you are at that moment.
"If you are looking for a meal, the closest drive-in is only 500 meters from here."

Estimate: a guess, roughly calculate
Nearest/closest: the one that you will see first, is not far away
道案内をするなら、だいたいどのくらいの距離なのか教えてあげるといいですね。

"I think the grocery store is about 2 km from here, it isn't far at all."(ここからそのスーパーまではだいたい2キロくらいだと思います)

'From here' は、それが現在地から距離であることを表します。

"If you are looking for a meal, the closest drive-in is only 500 meters from here."(食事をしたいなら、最寄りのドライブインは500メートル先です)

Estimate: 推測、だいたいの計算
Nearest/closest: 最も近い

When trying to tell someone that the nearest station is 4 kilometers away, you can simply say " the nearest station is 4 kilometers from where we are now" or " the closest station is 4 kilometers away from here". The word "nearest" tells them that is is the fasters/closest station to their current location.
「最寄りの駅は4キロ先です」は、シンプルに次のように言えます。

"The nearest station is 4 kilometers from where we are now"(最寄りの駅はここから4キロ先です)
"The closest station is 4 kilometers away from here"(最寄りの駅はここから4キロ先です)

"nearest" は、それが現在地から「最も近い」駅であることを表します。
