The simple answer is; No, you do not NEED a 4WD car when traveling to Iceland. You can drive most routes in Iceland on a regular 2WD car.
However, if you want to travel to the highlands of Iceland or drive on some mountain roads, you will need a 4WD car. Many people also find it more comfortable to drive a 4WD car during the winter time in Iceland because of the uncertain weather conditions.
