Asoko desu. Anata no kuruma wa midori desu ka? sa mo naito, nani iro desu ka
Does this make sence or is it muddled up?
Was this question helpful to you?

More clarification needed.
Please let us know what you were attempting to say. Sometimes something that looks at first fine will actually be wrong once we know what you were attempting to say.
Asoko desu. It is over there. This is fine
Anata no kuruma wa midori desu ka. Is your car green? This is also fine.
I am confused here though: sa mo naito - what are you trying to say here? The part following "what colour is it" is okay.
However depending on what you were trying to say. All of these things, even though the majority are fine as separate sentences may not actually convey what you were trying to say.

さもないと 'samonaito' has a negative feel to it.
I'd go with hoka no (他の(ほかの)).
Asoko desu ka? Anata no kuruma wa midori desu ka? hokano iro desu ka?
