The F-20 is actually a less capable aircraft to the F-16. It didn't meet USAF requirements and wouldn't have been accepted - just like the aircraft it was developed from, the F-5. Unlike the F-16, the F-20 had no potential for development and growth.
Obviously a lot smaller - although ironically the F-20 was, unlike the F-16A, designed from the beginning to carry BVR missiles (AIM-7), if my memory serves well.
It would quite a fun thing to see a Tigershark trying to emulate what the Swedes did with their aircrafts in dispersed sites and roads, how do you say "busted Landing gear" and "not enough wing"?
