Playing her first tournament since October, Radwanska dropped only one set in five matches in the event.
"I couldn't imagine a better start to the year," Radwanska said. "It's the perfect preparation for the Australian Open."
Wickmayer, who was hoping to add her second title in her third finals appearance in Auckland, saved five match points before bowing to Radwanska for the third time in three meetings.
"I'm a little disappointed," Wickmayer said. "But I fought my heart out and I left my heart and soul on the court. I couldn't have done any more than I did."
