Both have almost same meaning as "such as" in casual form.

"そんな:SON'NA" is little bit more casual than "そういう:SOUIU".

I remember one case where these words have difference.

"そういうこと!:SOUIU-KOTO" means "yes, it is!" while "そんなこと:SON'NA-KOTO" means just "something like that".

Language makes Culture and Culture makes Language.
