Do I need a C wire to install my new thermostat?

Yes, any Honeywell connected or Wi-Fi thermostat requires a wire connected to the C terminal to power the thermostat.

If you do not have a C wire, there are several options that you can choose from in order to make your Honeywell Wi-Fi thermostat functional. Please see What options do I have if I don't have the "C" or Common wire? for more information.
