Volkswagen Golf - hybrid or petrol?

My sister lives in London and wants to buy a Volkswagen Golf with an automatic gearbox. She has a budget of £20,000 and does mainly local journeys. with some longer ones at weekends. She is set on the Golf, but can't decide whether to get a hybrid or not. What do you recommend?

She doesn't have enough for a VW Golf GTE: Needs at least £12,800 and that's buying privately. £24k from a dealer.
