I agree that much of the "feel" of the clutch was lost when hydraulic systems came on the scene. It is so easy to feel exactly where the engagement point is on my old Chevy pickup, and use that to maximum advantage. It took a long time for me to get used to a Subaru clutch pedal, which has about zero feel to it. For the longest time, it was just nothing.... nothing.... BAM-engaged! I had to adopt a drive-it-like-you-stole it mentality in order to consistently not stall from a stop.
I'm not sure if this is the case with the transmission cited earlier, but it seems that there is likely not a mechanical connection between the shifter and the gearbox, either. So, the transmission may only shifts after driver input, but the driver clearly isn't the one shifting the car. Still a manual, but an entirely different interpretation.

I think is still has normal mechanical gear change. Nothing in their indicated otherwise. sounds more like the clutch will just automaticlaly disengage, but the trans stays in gear.

I'm not sure what your native language is, but what you wrote is hard for me to understand.
Perhaps that was the objective.

Or something like that.
"Hyundai has dropped the standard five-speed manual transmission in the base Tucson. All versions of the 2014 Tucson get the six-speed automatic transmission. Hyundai has also added an optional all-wheel-drive model to the base 2014 Tucson trim level. The 2014 Hyundai Tucson is on sale now."

Bummer. I test drove its twin, a Sportage, with a manual, and it was actually a fun ride. Far better clutch/shifter than the Optima's manual.
I'm sure 0.05% of them were bought with a manual.
