Many HK taxis can carry 5 passengers (driver excluded). Capacity is written on the taxi or just ask the guy at the queue to get you a taxi for 5 people.

Taxi fare from the airport to Harbour Grand is about HK$300 plus HK$5 for each item of luggage in taxi boot. Whilst most taxis can carry up to 5 passengers, if you are carrying a lot of luggage between you it is possible that it may not all fit in one taxi.

You can hire a 6-seater MPV from the airport, but it would still be cheaper to take two taxis;

this is a pic of HK taxis...they're all the same model Toyota. You can see the "5 passengers" label on rear left.

Unless you have very minimal luggage, 1 taxi for 5 adults won't work.

Plenty of airport public buses, and the airport train service as well

All new taxis since August 2008 carry a maximum of 4 passengers;

The front bench seat which accommodated the driver and two passengers in the previous model was replaced by two bucket seats as the passenger compartment had to be modified by Toyota in order to meet more stringent Japanese emission standards. The 5-seat Hong Kong Toyota taxi is no longer manufactured.
