    Abstract: A cooling apparatus (10) for a vehicle includes air-cooling first and second heat exchangers (12, 14) that are placed beside each other. A coolant flow-out portion (32) of the first heat exchanger (12) from which a first coolant which is a cooling target of the first heat exchanger (12) flows out and a coolant flow-out portion (36) of the second heat exchanger (14) from which a second coolant which is a cooling target of the second heat exchanger (14) flows out are placed at ends at opposite positions separated along a diagonal line on a parallel placement surface of the two heat exchangers (12, 14). A first cooling fan (20) is placed opposing the coolant flow-out portion (32) of the first heat exchanger (12), and a second cooling fan (22) is placed opposing the coolant flow-out portion (36) of the second heat exchanger (14). With this configuration, cooling performance of two air-cooling heat exchangers placed beside each other can be improved.
