A 2-0 series win over the West Indies kickstarted their home campaign and was followed by a tense 1-0 victory over England, courtesy of their dramatic drawn second Test in Christchurch.
Time ran out in the contest and New Zealand wrapped up what was only their fourth series win against England in 36 attempts.
A better start in Christchurch put them in a position to finally end their winless streak on Tuesday, but they were unable to dismiss New Zealand after starting the last day by taking two wickets in as many balls.
They added just 37 runs in 188 deliveries after Colin de Grandhomme was the seventh wicket to fall, but by that stage only survival mattered for New Zealand who finished on 256 for eight when Wagner fell for seven and bad light ended play eight balls early.
Earlier, England set a massive 382-tun victory target for the hosts.
"We threw absolutely everything at New Zealand today", England captain Joe Root said.
"I've always said that, would be nice to have a few more but definitely been four goodies and hope we have a few more next year. As a Test team we are growing, and I think we've seen that in this series".
Several players will have their places reviewed ahead of the start of a Test summer which includes series against Pakistan and India, with batsmen Mark Stoneman, James Vince and Dawid Malan the three most under the microscope. But Sodhi was determined on not giving up and he got an able partner in Neil Wagner who just blocked and blocked and blocked.

Mark Stoneman put down a tough chance at silly point before Sodhi had scored, and the batsman took full advantage of that reprieve as he and Colin de Grandhomme ate up nearly 26 overs in a stand of 57.
"Bar that first innings, we've played some good cricket and especially in this game, I think we showed what we are about", he added. They got a huge victory over the guest team.
New Zealand had resumed on 42-0 with Jeet Raval (17) and Tom Latham unbeaten but the former clipped Broad to square-leg and then captain Kane Williamson edged a rising delivery behind.
Root scored a century in England's second warm-up match and was the only England player to reach three figures in the two drawn matches against a New Zealand XI.
De Grandhomme, who had already made an important contribution by scoring 72 in New Zealand's first innings, batted 137 minutes and faced 97 balls in his invaluable 45. So, England scored 307 runs there.
It was the first golden duck for the New Zealand's star batsman playing in his 65th Test.
They were limpet-like in the 11 overs possible in the final session, offering only one opening when James Vince at third slip spilled a tough chance from Latham off Anderson.
"You get used to long tours as a Test cricketer and you want to play in big series like this and the Ashes but it's not gone as well as we would've liked", he said.
