Is there some nuanced differences between this grammar point and the そういう grammar point?

Hi!

This is what I have in my notes on the そういう grammar:

"In speech it’s not much different than こんな そんな 、or あんな (which are informal forms of このような そのような 、and あのような ) ".

This is directly taken from the second resource listed in that grammar point, ELI5: How to use こういう/そういう/ああいう/どういう. : r/LearnJapanese (reddit.com).

HTH!
