I think the Buick will still be front wheel drive and Alpha is RWD. I think its the same as 2013+ Malibu

Buick Regal - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

At the 2010 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, GM showed a concept GS version of the Regal based on the Opel Insignia OPC. The concept featured a 2.0L, 255 hp (190 kW), 295 lb·ft (400 N·m) high-output DOHC I4 turbocharged Ecotec engine, a six-speed manual transmission and all-wheel drive.

The production GS leaves most of the concept specifications intact, but will be front-wheel drive.[25] The GS features Buick's Interactive Drive Control System with GS mode, a choice of an FGP Germany F40-6 six-speed manual or Aisin AF-40 (G2) six-speed automatic transmission, high performance brakes with Brembo front calipers and high performance strut (HiPerStrut) front suspension. 19 inch wheels will be standard and 20 inch forged aluminum wheels will be available. The GS is expected to accelerate from zero to 60 miles per hour in under seven seconds.[26] The production version will be equipped with GS-only high-output version of the Ecotec 2.0L turbo engine with 270 hp (201 kW) and 295 lb·ft (400 N·m) of torque. The GS will go on sale in fall 2011 as a 2012 model.[25][27]

Assembled by Shanghai GM, the Chinese version of Regal GS goes on sale on 15th Sep 2011. This car has been localized. The output of the 2.0L Turbo SIDI engine is 162 kW, which is about 40 kW less than the production US-model. The Torque is 350 Nm and the top speed is claimed as 232 km/h. Only front-wheel-drive model is offered. There exist also some interior and exterior differences between the American and Chinese models.[28]
